We know from our clients that making the decision to see a consultant for psychiatric help can be a daunting experience, so we aim to make the process simple and reassuring.
A psychiatrist is a doctor who is qualified in medicine and has undertaken additional specialist training. Psychiatrists can prescribe medicine if necessary.
Ideally we would want to work with your GP so there is a single source of prescribing and so your GP can assist you with any repeat prescriptions.
However, we understand that confidentiality is very important and you may choose not to involve your GP.
Common conditions we can help to treat:
- Alcohol and drug misuse
- Anger Management
- Gambling addiction
- Medically unexplained symptoms
- Memory problems
- Mood disorders
- Obsessive-compulsive disorders
- Panic attacks
- Personality issues
- Psychiatric disorders consequent on physical illness
- Sexual and libido concerns
